and other diplomatic facilities. based on secretary clinton's recent testimony before congress, it is clear that the state department and the department of defense are already consulting on this review, high-threat posts as well as posts where the host nation, despite having the will to protect diplomatic facilities does not have the capacity to protect them. in some cases, these posts are located in countries where the department of defense and the state department have assistance programs with similar objectives. these are perhaps areas where the two departments can explore whether additional collaboration is appropriate. during secretary clinton's testimony before congress, she talked about the importance of properly resourcing africa command. they reached full operational capability less than five years ago and has been an -- what's called an economy of force effort to date. the events of last september raised questions about the adequacy of the department of defense's resourcing with respect to africom in terms of funding, assigned personnel, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissan

, perhaps as much as president presidents like president clinton and others. but to clark's point, the biggest debate is within the republican party. the fact that they have two republicans in the response to the state of the union is a party that's divided. i think in the past election, we saw that the republican party is on the wrong side of history when it comes to climate change, guns, gay marriage, jobs, all these issues the president laid out in his inaugural address. we're going to hear how he's going to move those issues forward tuesday night in a way that is widely supported by the american people, and the republican party just needs to figure out whether they want to get on board with the rest of america or want to be behind the curve of history and be an afterthought over the next decade. >> paul, i've got to stop you right now. thank you very much. and also clark judge, we appreciate it. both men writing speeches for presidents past and present. tune in at 7:00 p.m. on tuesday for our live coverage of the state of the union speech. clinton ronashey will be a guest of t
